An class for ages 13 and up, consists of mainly young adults and adults. You and/or your child will learn the techniques of Wing-chung Kung Fu (Ip Man and Bruce Lee), Chun Su and Tai Chi.
What is Wing-chung Kung Fu?..
Wing Chun (literally: “spring chant”), also romanised as Ving Tsun or Wing Tsun, (and sometimes substituted with the characters 永春 “eternal springtime”); is a concept-based Chinese martial art and form of self-defense utilising both striking and grappling while specialising in close-range combat. The alternative characters 永春 “eternal spring” are also associated with some other southern Chinese martial arts, including Weng Chun Kung Fu and Yong Chun.
What is Tai Chi?..
Often shortened to t’ai chi, taiji or tai chi in English usage, t’ai chi ch’uan or tàijíquán is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits. Though originally conceived as a martial art, it is also typically practiced for a variety of other personal reasons: competitive wrestling in the format of pushing hands (tui shou), demonstration competitions, and achieving greater longevity. As a result, a multitude of training forms exist, both traditional and modern, which correspond to those aims with differing emphasis. Some training forms of t’ai chi ch’uan are especially known for being practiced with relatively slow movements. Today, t’ai chi ch’uan has spread worldwide. Most modern styles of t’ai chi ch’uan trace their development to at least one of the five traditional schools: Chen, Yang, Wu, Wu (Hao), and Sun. All of the former, in turn, trace their historical origins to Chen Village.
